The Reality of Fraud

Most of us have, at some point, been victims of fraud. It can happen when someone asks for your personal information and you give it to them in good faith. In those cases, the act is intentional. In other situations, criminal fraud might simply be a mistake of fact that needs to be examined more closely.

If fraud involves a federal agency, such as the Postal Service, the Internal Revenue Service, or Social Security, the charges can become much more severe and will require skillful criminal defense if you are to protect your freedom.

Types of federal fraud include:

  • Identity theft
  • Mail fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Bankruptcy fraud
  • Tax evasion

Fighting the Charges Against You

Not all who are charged with fraud had criminal intent. Some people make mistakes when filing their taxes that can be construed as willfully misleading. Peter Barrett can help.

During your initial consultation, we can discuss what happened so you know how to proceed. By examining the charges and evidence against you, we can ensure you get the chance to tell your side of the story and get the best outcome for your situation.
